Research Interests

Interactions between women’s stress and reproductive physiology and the impact of prenatal stress on child development.


I joined the Faculty of Health Sciences in 2008. I obtained my first degree in Biology in my native country, Argentina, from the University of Patagonia.  For my doctoral studies I moved to the USA, where I obtained a Ph.D. in Anthropology (Biological) and Natural Resources and Environment (Ecology) from The University of Michigan. At the same University, I received training from the Reproductive Sciences Program and was a Pre-doctoral Fellow at the Institute for Social Research. Additionally, I am an alumnus from the LIFE Program (“Life Course: Evolutionary and Ontogenetic Dynamics)” from the International Max Planck Research School (Berlin, Germany). I received post-doctoral training in the Epidemiology Branch of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIH-USA).
